Welcome to the LWV of Larimer County: Making Democracy Work For All!
The League of Women Voters of Larimer County is a nonprofit, non-partisan political organization that encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government; works to increase understanding of major public policy issues; and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Our members are men as well as women, ages 16 and up.
We are a member of the national League of Women Voters which was formed when women finally gained the right to vote in 1920. Throughout the League’s nearly 100 year history and working in all states, the League focus has been to expand participation and give a voice to all Americans. It never endorses, supports or opposes any political candidate or political party
We invite you to:
- Join our dynamic members – men and women – to study issues, learn, engage in civil deliberations and take action. We provide members with training and tools so that they can feel empowered to speak out on issues.
- Use the resources on this website to educate and empower yourself.
- Join us at our public events.
We urge you to make sure your voice is heard. VOTE . . . it matters!
